Suggested Subject Line: Fairfax Connector Announces Express Lanes Service from Burke to Tysons

Email Text: Residents of Burke will soon enjoy a new, convenient way to get to work. Starting January 14, 2013, Fairfax Connector’s Express Lanes bus service will provide commuters with a new option for getting to and from Tysons during rush hour. You can enjoy a stress-free, direct commute that is faster than ever with this new, limited-stop express service.

The new bus service, operated by the Fairfax Connector, will use the dedicated 495 Express Lanes—buses are expected to travel on average 55 mph on the Beltway, even during rush hour. There will be three routes traveling through Tysons. Each route will target different employment centers within Tysons and allow riders to choose the most direct trip to the office with minimal time on the bus. Buses will run every 15 minutes during peak times on weekdays, and there will also be two midday departures from Tysons to Burke. The fare is $3.65 SmarTrip® or $4 cash each way. Ride for free 1/14 to 1/24.

The 495 Express Lanes use an automated system of varying tolls designed to help control traffic volume and keep the speeds at a brisk 55 mph. Fairfax Connector's no-transfer Express Connector service gives commuters the ability to avoid the tolls (and driving) entirely.

Imagine a commute where you aren’t the one behind the wheel: You can read, catch up on email, or simply relax, all while cruising past traffic on the Beltway!
